8 linear feet (15 MB, 1 OS)

Mizrachi is a religious Zionist organization. Support for Zionism began in Detroit as early as 1903. By 1930 support for this movement in gathering Jews in Palestine was strong because of World War II and Nazi persecution. These records document the activities of the Detroit Mizrachi organization. Primarily composed of correspondence, the papers relate to national and Detroit community Zionist efforts and Jewish youth camps.
